Tadano Mantis GTC-1200 Teleboom Crawler Added to Rental Fleet
Scott Powerline and Utility Equipment, one of the oldest and largest Mantis crane dealers, will add the newly developed GTC-1200 130-ton (US) rated teleboom crawler crane to its Mantis rental fleet.
The concept behind the development of the GTC-1200 was to design and build a telescopic boom crawler crane that met the requirements of the growing Tadano Mantis core markets of power transmission, bridge and civil, and foundation construction while expanding the broader appeal of the crane toward lift crane based markets.
The GTC-1200 is powered by a Cummins Tier 4f, QSL9 diesel engine rated 350 hp (261 kW) at 2100 rpm. The load sensing, power controlled hydraulic system optimizes the hydraulic output to the diesel engine power output for highly efficient operation and control; the swing system is controlled by a separate closed loop hydrostatic transmission for good swing performance. The travel system features two-speed track drives with maximum speeds of 1.6 mph and a maximum unladen gradability of 52 percent.

Lightweight Portable Crane Upgraded
SpitzLift has made upgrades to its aluminum lightweight portable crane, which is lightweight and payload efficient. Ford recently released its 2015 F-150, which features an aluminum cab and bed. This move toward lightweight fleets marks the first instance of aluminum being used in such a high-volume automotive industry product, it's reported.
SpitzLift is cited to be the lightest crane available that can pick up more than 30 times its own weight. It is both a safety and efficiency tool for fleet managers and those lifting and transporting heavy materials.
SpitzLift is now offering a shut-off mechanism that can be set to the exact weight being lifted. This load limiter switch increases user safety and ensures the maximum load capacity is not reached. SpitzLift features an ergonomic design upgrade that helps prevent over shoulder lifting for field workers. Most work related injuries are shoulder related, so this upgrade safeguards against these types of injuries. With a titanium base, SpitzLift has built-in safety features and has stood the test of time.
